My wife and I have been talking about this for the past few days, because it's getting on our nerves. We actually like clowns, and clowns have enough
of a bad stigma today without this making it worse. It's almost like the end of clowns as we know it, because any legit clown will be harassed by
police for being a clown.
It's not just happening in Georgia, we keep reading stories across the country. We think we know how it all started, too. If I recall correctly,
there were some stories of clowns walking up to people's porches in the middle of the night and staring at their security cameras. I believe it was
down in FL, but don't quote me on that. I remember reading about this on the internet, and even seeing some of the footage. They didn't really do
anything but stare, but I will admit, it would be creepy knowing that while you were sleeping some clown was on your porch for an hour.
Shortly after reading about these incidents, we started reading about other clowns standing around in random areas being creepy in CA. I don't
necessarily mean street corners, but on state highways, forests, etc......just random places that if you saw a clown you'd be creeped out, because
they don't belong there. Then more and more copycats seem to be coming around, which is what we're all reading nowadays. My wife has shown me
articles where clowns have tried to take kids into forests, others going on social media threatening to steal kids and/or shoot teachers, all sorts of
My theory is that many people are copying the creepy clowns from FL all because they want to troll people. The problem is, many of them are taking
this trolling too far. I think they believe that as long as they're in make-up, it's like being anonymous on the internet. They keep thinking they
can get away with it. Funnily enough, my wife has also read articles where quite a few people have been arrested because of this in Philadelphia,
Virginia and South Carolina. In fact, 12 people were arrested in SC because of this.
